I have a cornbread recipe that my kids really like. I know that the cornmeal may not be the best, but I am wondering how to make this recipe plan friendly. The current recipe is 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 cup yellow cornmeal, 2/3 cup white sugar, 1 tsp salt, 3 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. Do you think it would work if I used unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil, golden flax or almond flour and Nunaturals? Thanks!
I'm not sure how plan-friendly cornmeal is. It has 83 net carbs per cup. That plus the additional flour, say it's spelt at 72 net carbs per cup, puts the recipe at 155 carbs. Divided into say 9 servings is about 17-18 carbs per serving.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE cornbread, but have put it into a 'cheat' category in my head, as I usually bake it when we're having chili, in which case the net carbs of the cornbread combined with the carbs of E style chili would probably be too high for the 45 g meal allowance.
If you were set on trying to make it E friendly, I know cornbread works very well with almond milk, I've made mine that way for years. You'd need to swap out the oil with a fat replacement, with say applesauce (which will up the carbs a little bit) or greek yogurt; the egg with egg whites; and you would not use the almond flour, as it is an S, unless you were going for more of a Crossover type recipe. (In which case I suppose you could leave in the egg and use coconut oil.) Using nunaturals to sweeten it should work fine.
Also remember, if you were using it in E style, you would only use 1 tsp of butter on it, unless you are having the added fat somewhere else in your dinner. (And if you use honey on it like I loved to do, it would push the carbs higher. )
I tried making my own E style muffin-in-a-mug with a oats, quinoa flakes, 1 T of cornmeal for that taste/texture, egg whites, stevia, and yogurt. Didn't love how it turned out. If I perfect it I'll post
For me, I think it is easier to just make the regular recipe for my Hubby and babes, and either have a tiny tiny sliver, or just forego it, knowing I'm getting skinnier
But if you really really want to experiment with it, go for it! And let us know if you come up with anything fabulous

I want to give these a try sometime to see how "cornbread" they are like. Might do stevia for honey, but leave in the applesauce since it is such a little amount spread for 6 muffins and provides some moisture I might add a bit of water for the moisture lost from the honey.
sophia: OMW!!! The new THM protein powder is amazing!! I love it! You know what's also amazing (besides the taste)? There is only 1 ingredient on the label... not like 50 that I've never heard of! lol

Avonlea: I'm a fairly new THM...started only about 3 months ago. I've lost about 13 pounds but lately my body has just quit. I've even gained back a couple pounds. I'm losing inspiration because it seems to have quit working and I can feel myself wanting to cave

steffanie3: idahomama2 http://trimhealthymama.freeforums.net/thread/2156/singing-canary-pearl-serene is the link to Singing Canary, all of the post book recipes and other things are in that forum, lots of good info

steffanie3: calsunflower, I would suggest increasing a your unrefined salt a little and possibly adding some magnesium, it can really help with leg cramps. Some mamas have also mentioned GGMS helping too

steffanie3: Avonlea, please feel free to post a menu in the S and E forum or in menus if you would like the ladies to give your menus a look to see if we can see anything that needs tweaking. That said 13 pounds in three months is great, long term loss~ pound a week

Bryony: New to this posting thing, hope I am doing it right! Been on plan about 2 mo, lost 17 pounds. Still wearing same size clothes but more comfortably. Which is all good. Question though - has anyone else had problems with loose stools?

steffanie3: Hi Bryony As your body adjust to coconut oil, mct oil, or xylitol loose stools can happen. If you have added those or more of those recently you might need to cut back a little and work up Congrats on the 17 pounds, that is great
